Drinking alcohol on a domestic flight is typically reserved for first-class passengers or those willing to give an arm and a leg for a coach-class libation. But in October, JetBlue offered a seasonal special for passengers on board a select flight from New York’s JFK International Airport to Denver (DEN).
Travelers who booked a seat onboard Flight 97 on Oct. 5 shared the cabin space with the president and one of the founders of Samuel Adams: Jim Koch. As such, they were treated to an in-flight beer tasting of the company’s traditional Oktoberfest beer as well as two new blends, served to each passenger on a wooden tray.
The beer tasting commenced approximately one hour into the flight and included the flight of three beers plus complimentary gift bags that included a tasting paddle, similar to the ones from which imbibers were sampling the beer in flight. Passengers also received a paddle opener, an Oktoberfest hat and a book by Jim Koch (Quench Your Own Thirst: Business Lessons Learned Over a Beer or Two).
Named “FlytoberFest,” this one-time experience was one of the opening events to kick off the Great American Beer Festival in Colorado Oct. 5–7.
There are few things as adult-ish as a well-designed living space. When you stop strewing your Ikea coffee table with old magazines and straw wrappers, and start creating a “lewk” that’s more your style, it’s time to invest in a coffee table book. Sometimes pricey, these are not the tomes you curl up with in your cozy chair. They’re often hefty, artistic and fun and, if chosen correctly, a true representation of your own sense of style and interests.
